Ozzy took a while you get over Randy Rhodes untimely death, which is only understandable, but he is back with a killer of an album. Ultimate Sin is a shinning example of just how diverse the mans music can be. From Killer Of Giants, which carries a message about the threat of nuclear war and the danger posed by the like of the cold war, through to Shot In The Dark which has the same sort of message but on a more personal level. Some of the guitar solos by Jake Lee are superb with the one during Lighting Strikes being the pick of the bunch. There are a couple of what I can only describes as below par tracks on here in the form of Fool Like You and Secret Loser which in my opinion don't come up to the usual standard and only seem to be there to make up the numbers. I said it earlier that the best thing about the album is the guitar work and maybe Ozzy was still getting over his best friends death when he did this album and that may account for some of the weaker points about it, however it is still with a listen and take a chance and add it to your collection.
